If you already love Disney movies, you need to know about Disney Broadway too! Disney’s Newsies is available on Disney Movies Anywhere TODAY, May 23rd! Disney Home Entertainment sent us a fun gift pack to celebrate the release!
My kids love all things Disney, and always get excited about new releases, no matter what they are! Quincy clearly is ready for Broadway fun! In our box was also sketch pads and drawing pencils, and she’s very excited to go to work drawing while she watches Newsies again! She loves to sing and draw so much!
Filmed live on stage, this high-energy, not-to-be-missed show features stars of the original, Tony Award®-winning Broadway production joined by those of the North American tour. Set in New York City at the turn of the last century and based on a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, leader of a ragged band of teenage “newsies” who dream only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when two publishing titans raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for.
